Inta Ruka is Latvias most renowned photographer and one of the most fascinating names among European imagemakers. This impressive monograph presents for the first time her collected work in a single book, including her three largest projects, which reach back to the 1980s: My Country People, People I Happened to Meet and Amalias Street 5a. Her documentary-anthropological approach has been inspired by August Sander, Walker Evans and Dorothea Lange. Working in her hometown of Riga, Inta Ruka brings to her photos of her countrymen both curiosity and honesty, as well as a sense of mutual trust, which permeates all her portraits.
